You own several stunning cars, Richard, and take great photos of them.   I enjoy looking at your website.

Anything by Ghia is very special.

One can clearly see the 61-62 Plymouth concept in the rear panel execution. Neat car. What kind of price range did these sell in when new ? Were they sold through Chrysler dealerships ?

Base price was $15,000. They built 26 of them from 1960 - 1962. A modified Chrysler chassis and drive train was shipped from the factory to Italy where Ghia built the entire car. They were not sold through Chrysler dealerships but through small boutique European sports car dealerships. Here in Los Angeles they were sold through a dealership in Beverly Hills owned by Burt Sugarman which also sold other limited production coach-built cars like Facel-Vega, etc. You could also order them through Dual Motors in Detroit, although they had nothing to do with their construction.

Thanks for the info. I can easily see the Sinatra set driving a car like this, but they are too weird for public consumption. I don't think I ever saw one outside of books. At 15 large, you could buy 3 top end Caddies, or a house in the burbs in 1962. Thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous car you have, I've actually seen one in real, we had a WPC member from Switzerland attending the WPC Club International Meeting in Oslo Norway with his car in 1984. I have to cope with the 1/43 scale version with the Corgi dog on the rear window shelf.

Given its celebrity type car status, any interesting ownership history ?

My grandmother used to tell me the story of the doctor she worked for driving a Deusenburg when she lived in L.A. in the 30's.

Rich, that is a stunning car, these Dual Ghias are some of my favorites. The saying was, if you were among the Hollywood Jet-Set, and couldn't get a Ghia, you had to settle for a Rolls. The radio in this particular car, as in other Ghias I've seen pics of, is straight out of a 1960 Dodge or DeSoto. The radio knobs themselves are 60-61 DeSoto. There are a lot more pictures here. http://mopar-collection.com/

This car has a 1960 type compound curved "bubble" windshield.

Some of the other contemporary Mopar styling touches are the shape of the front wheel openings ( 1960 Plymouth), the raised fin on top of the front fender ( 61 Dodge ). There are a lot of stock off the shelf Mopar parts on it like the radio, heater controls, dash knobs, windshield, vent windows, interior and exterior door handles, power window switches, parking brake warning light ( 1960 Dodge), lock cylinders, A/C vents, etc. etc.
